‘This Week on America’s Business’

By February 8, 2008America's Business

Americas-Business-logo.jpgEurope is way ahead of the United States when it comes to nuclear energy development. But Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN), a guest on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick,” said America should be the No. 1 nation when it comes to nuclear and other alternative energy.

“Let’s advance nuclear, let’s solve the problems of the world, let’s build energy technologies out of this country and export them to the world,” says Wamp, who sits on the House Nuclear Energy Working Group.

Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL) returns to “America’s Business” to discuss her recent trip to Colombia and the status of a pending U.S.-Colombia free trade pact.

Author Garrett Graff will join Mike to discuss how technology and globalization are revolutionizing political campaigns. Meanwhile, Tom Tanton from the Institute for Energy Research will explain the ramifications of California suing EPA to create its own emissions rules to fight global warming.

“America’s Business” will also visit an inner city Washington, D.C. high school that is getting kids interested in robotics, a technology vital to manufacturing. And closing out the program is the “The Last Word” from the National Association of Manufacturers President John Engler on the California EPA lawsuit.
